Assuming that all 50 nodes run puppet and that you want to force user xyz to exist on all nodes... you need to have a common class assigned to all nodes, then within that class you can create the xyz user resource:

user { 'xyz':
    ensure => present,
    password => sha1('xyz'),
}

Along with whatever other defaults you want for uid, gid, home, shell, etc.
